I've decided that I want to try keeping bees. I've also decided that I want to be as low impact and cheap about this as possible, both for me, and the bees. Today, I built my first bee hive. It is a Kenyan top bar hive. Thanks for the suggestions, Chris! This particular one is 20 inches long and is intended as a bait hive.
I have some lemongrass oil coming to use as an attractant. When it arrives I intend to hang this hive about 20 feet up in this black locust tree.
Got any other suggestions for me?
